|What have I just gotten myself into?|
The election has taken on a whole new tone today. The GOP is betting that people want to see the federal government get smaller, regardless of how much pain there is for many in the country as a result. The Democrats are betting that people will not want to see their taxes go up so the taxes on the rich go down even lower, and that they want to protect the social safety net. If you thought this campaign was ugly with class warfare before, buckle up and hang on, you ain't seen nothing yet. This is going to be a very ugly and bruising campaign. Welcome to it Congressman Ryan.
Bonus side note: Interesting historical fact with this ticket of Romney/Ryan. With a Mormon (Romney) and a Catholic (Ryan), this is the first ever major party ticket to not have at least 1 Protestant on it.
